Printmaking: Here/Now

August 17, 2015 – January 15, 2016

Presented by Santa Cruz County Bank Arts Collaborative and Printmakers At The Tannery

Curated by Joan Blackmer

Reception: September 30, 2015, 5:30-7:00pm.
Santa Cruz branch, 720 Front Street

Printmaking: Here/Now explores new and old methodologies in the art of printmaking. Over 80 works on display represent a diversity of techniques by eighteen member artists of PATT including silkscreen, etching, collograph, monotype, chine collé, photopolymer etching, photogravure, linocut, collage and woodcut printing.

Printmaker and instructor, Jane Gregorius partnered with Janis O’Driscoll, printmaker and Santa Cruz public librarian to create this show at the invitation of Mary Anne Carson, Senior Vice President and Director of the Arts Collaborative at Santa Cruz County Bank. Jane explains, “The works on display in this exhibition represent the unique versatility of this medium. Artists have been challenged by the difficulties of making prints for centuries, yet have loved the surprising, sometimes accidental results. There are so many ways to make a print, and Janis and I wanted to include as many as possible. Fortunately, there are 18 of us so we’re able to show almost every aspect of the printmaking world.
